A Busy Fall

The last couple of weeks have been a blur!  We are in the heart of Fall soccer, and trying to get the garden buttoned up, remaining harvests processed, and the farrowing barn done in between.  We harvested 45 butternut squash over the last week.  I have been experimenting with a few new recipes and so far both soups and the alfredo have been fantastic!  
B has been working hard on the granary to get the East side of it cleared and converted to farrowing pens.  There are quantities of sawdust like dirt on the floor that reflects years and layers of empty grain hulls.  He is removing that down to the rock and stone floor so that we can then grade it and finish the base and then put in two nice pens.  Penelope and Mabel will then be able to walk through into their feeding area, their current sleeping spot and pasture access in the adjacent section of the barn.

Oh and well this last weekend was also Sid's first homecoming.  She went with her best friend and had a fantastic time!  So it has been a bit chaotic, but loads of fun.  As it is now October, and we seem to have gotten into the school/activities/farming groove, I am so looking forward to enjoying every fall moment to its fullest.
